Love Like This

 

When I was baby in this world 

I used to cry for everything 

I didn’t know how to defend

I only knew how to depend

 

But I heard my mother say to me 

I’m gonna rock you up to be 

Everything a man is supposed to a be

And everything a man will ever need

 

Cause when you got love like this my son 

You gotta hold on tight 

And when you got love like this my friend 

You gotta love it till the end

 

And don’t you ever turn your back on love

Or ever give up on a friend

Cause Lennon said that love is all that you need

And when a love like this you’ll be

 

The first time I looked into her eyes

I was under a spell

I didn’t know what I was in 

I only knew it was a sin

 

But ? in that safe

My broken heart 

I only learned that love can be a fire 

I really learned that love can burn

 

Cause when you got love like this my son 

You gotta hold on tight 

And when you got love like this my friend 

You gotta love it till the end

 

And don’t you ever turn your back on love

Or ever give up on a friend

Cause Lennon said that love is all that you need

And when a love like this you’ll be

 

And when I saw that picture on the screen 

And felt you kicking deep inside

I was lost for all my words

I was truly mesmerized

 

And when I got to hold you in my arms

You know I finally understand

Just how truelove really feels 

And what it’s like to be a man

 

 

Cause when you got love like this my son 

You gotta hold on tight 

And when you got love like this my friend 

You gotta love it till the end

 

And don’t you ever turn your back on love

Or ever give up on a friend

Cause Lennon said that love is all that you need

And when a love like this you’ll be

 

 

Cause when you got love like this my son 

You gotta hold on tight 

And when you got love like this my friend 

You gotta love it till the end

 

And don’t you ever turn your back on love

Or ever give up on a friend

Cause Lennon said that love is all that you need

And when a love like this you’ll be

 

Superman

 

You’re sexy eyes are on tonight 

You’re lookin’ for a one-way flight

You need a man to ease your

Worried mind

 

I know you’ve seen me here before

And girl before you lock that door

I think you know exactly 

What you’ll find 

 

So baby don’t you worry now (baby don’t you worry)

Cause I’ll be coming right to you

This man of steel will surely understand

You need a superman

 

Your troubles, lies and your mysteries

Have all been catching up I see 

So you feel like running off in 

Some kind of dream

 

Yeah but dreams sometimes they do come true

Girl it’s really up to you

To take a chance on love 

In first sight 

 

So baby don’t you worry now (baby don’t you worry)

Cause I’ll be coming right to you

This man of steel will surely understand

You need a superman

 

My love won’t come on too strong

And we can make it last as long 

Until the sun is rising 

In your eyes 

 

Your sexy eyes are on tonight 

And you’re looking for a one-way flight baby

You need a man to ease your 

Worried mind…oh yeah

 

So baby don’t you worry now (baby don’t you worry)

Cause I’ll be coming right to you

This man of steel will surely understand

You need a superman

 

Holding Out For Love

 

 

Tell me now how’s it gonna be

Only you can make it right you see

I believed in your mystery

That you’re never gonna set me free

 

Here I sit all alone

Locked in my mind waiting by this phone

Nowhere to run, nowhere to hide

Feelings for you that kill my pride

 

Say how long that you’re gonna need to get strong

I give you everything you want

And everything that I made up

I’m holding out for love

 

I tried to cry but these tears for you

Suddenly die without rescue 

Almost at once you were gone again

Didn’t seem to care how it all might end

 

So take me down to the bottom low

And make it hurt like I never know

Still I like at you and can’t deny

I want you now more than any lie

 

Say how long that you’re gonna need to get strong

I give you everything you want

And everything that I made up

I’m holding out for love 

 

Now I open up my arms

I can’t show you my true love

If this doesn’t get through to you

I need to walk away

 

Tell me now how’s it gonna be 

Only you can make it right you see

I believe in your mystery 

That you’re never gonna set me free

 

Say how long that you’re gonna need to get strong

I give you everything you want

And everything that I made up

I’m holding out for love 

 

Little Red Corvette – written by PRINCE

I guess I should've known by the way
You parked your car sideways that it wouldn't last
See, you're the kinda person that believes in makin' out once
Love 'em and leave 'em fast

I guess I must be dumb
'Cause you had a pocket full of horses
Trojan and some of them used
But it was Saturday night, I guess that makes it all right
And you say, "What have I got to lose?"

And honey, I say Little Red Corvette
Baby, you're much too fast
(Oh)
Little Red Corvette
You need a love that's gonna last

I guess I should've closed my eyes
When you drove me to the place where your horses run free
'Cause I felt a little ill when I saw all the pictures
Of the jockeys that were there before me

Believe it or not, I started to worry
I wondered if I had enough class
But it was Saturday night, I guess that makes it all right
And you say, "Baby, have you got enough gas?", Oh yeah

Little Red Corvette
Baby, you're much too fast
(Yes, you are)
Little Red Corvette
You need to find a love that's gonna last
(Oh, oh)

A body like yours oughta be in jail
'Cause it's on the verge of bein' obscene
Move over, baby, gimme the keys
I'm gonna try to tame your little red love machine

Little Red Corvette
Baby, you're much too fast
Little Red Corvette
Need to find a love that's gonna last, hey hey

Little Red Corvette
Honey, you got to slow down
(Got to slow down)
Little Red Corvette

'Cause if you don't, you're gonna run your little red corvette
Right in the ground
(Little Red Corvette)
Right down to the ground
(Honey, you got to slow down)

You, you, you got to slow down
(Little Red Corvette)
You're movin' much too fast, too fast
Need to find a love that's gonna last

Girl, you got an ass like I never seen, ow
And the ride
I say the ride is so smooth, you must be a Limousine

Ow, baby, you're much too fast
Little Red Corvette
You need a love, you need a love that's, uh, that's gonna last
(Little Red Corvette)

Babe, you got to slow down
(Y got to slow down)
Little Red Corvette
'Cause if you don't, 'cause if you don't

You're gonna run your body right into the ground
(Right into the ground)
Right into the ground
(Right into the ground)
Right into the ground
(Right into the ground)

 

Universe

 

Why are we here?

Walking around 

Driving our cars

 

Loving one close

Hating one far 

But no one really knows why 

 

All of us searching 

For the truth 

For the answers inside 

 

We need to know why 

Oh but why 

Do we need to know why 

 

Why can’t we just try to love 

This world 

No matter what they say 

 

We look into the eye 

And thank the sky 

I don’t need to know why 

And I don’t know why 

We live in this universe 

In this universe 

 

It’s all so physical 

Everything 

We see 

 

From the bottoms of the oceans

The tops upon the mountains

And our bodies 

 

All go crashing in 

To one another, to create 

One love in others 

 

The space inside my mind 

Is the space but I will find 

Peace and love for my sisters and brothers 

 

Oh but why do I 

Look outside for the answers 

And I don’t know why and I don’t need to know why

And I don’t know why and I don’t need to know why

We live in this Universe 

In this Universe 

 

I am so glad

You’re here with me

In this Universe 

 

It’s just like everything is 

Crashing down on my soul 

 

It’s like this world is trying to 

Get inside of me

And take control 

 

 

So why are we here

Walking around

Driving our cars

 

To take it all in

Cause today may be 

The end 

 

Oh now why 

Do I 

Look outside for the answers 

 

I don’t need to know why 

And I don’t know why 

And I don’t know why 

And I don’t know why 

We live in this Universe 

In this Universe 

 

I am so glad

You’re here with me

In this Universe 

 
 
 

Blinded

 

Belly of life 

In the depths of the dark side

Tried to catch my breath 

Between the liquor and the pride

Stone cold crazy 

Losing my mind

 

I was blinded 

Blinded by the life 

I was blinded 

Blinded by the life 

But amazing grace 

Took away my knife 

 

Ate up with ego 

Driven by desire 

And all my loved ones 

Were thrown into the fire 

Won’t somebody help me

Words straight from a liar 

 

I was blinded 

Blinded by the life 

I was blinded 

Blinded by the life

But amazing grace 

It took away my knife 

 

I was lost 

Oh now I am found 

My broken heart 

Has spoken strong and bound 

And I know the dark side 

Is always just around 

 

I was blinded 

Blinded by the life 

I was blinded 

Blinded by the life 

But amazing grace 

Oh amazing grace 

Oh amazing grace 

It took away my knife 

Slow It Down

 

When I look back 

Upon my life 

You know it’s hard to remember 

Anything I did right

 

I tried to examine 

All my bad ways 

When there’s not enough 

I was in daze 

 

I’ve learned one lesson 

One I have found is to

Slow it down 

 

I can’t believe 

What I have done 

You know them days they run together 

And they melt into one 

 

And all of the heartache 

And all of the pain 

You know I pray to god 

Oh please, baptize the rain 

 

I’ve learned one lesson 

You know the one I have found is to

Slow it down

I gotta slow it down 

 

Now I take each breath 

You know in and out 

And I don’t live in the past 

Lord, I live in the now 

 

And I tried to surrender 

My will and my ways 

And I live forgiveness 

And I treasure each day 

 

I’ve learned one lesson 

Like the one I have found is to

Slow it down 

I gotta slow it down 

 

Today 

 

I take my time about growing older

I try to live like I’m getting younger

All my friends say that life is colder

I just smile and off of my shoulder

 

My life is simple for that I’m grateful

With all my blessings I can’t be hateful

This world is heaven 

With you beside me

My eyes are open to what might find me

 

I know that life is gonna bring some pain 

But with some help from above 

I know it’s gonna be okay

Just for Today 

 

I know the feeling of always falling

The lost confusion of endless crawling

And when I woke up among the living 

I became bound to love and forgiving

 

I know that life is gonna bring some pain 

But with some help from above 

I know it’s gonna be okay

Just for Today 

 

There’s a world on fire 

Full of hate and desire 

I know that love is gonna fall like rain

 

I take my time about growing older

I try to live like I’m getting younger

All my friends say that life is colder

I just smile and off of my shoulder

 

I know that life is gonna bring some pain 

But with some help from above 

I know it’s gonna be okay

Just for Today 

 

No Big City

 

I remember being young

When I went downtown 

Buildings so tall I can’t see

Clouds in the sky

Shadows would black out the streets

 

People walk for miles just to get back to work 

All the cars and buses stealing the scene 

Oh the one homeless man

Who’s sleeping on the corner with a newspaper pillow

Obscene

 

It’s no big city 

Anymore 

It’s no big city 

Not for me 

 

Now it’s time to grow up 

And stay out all night

Downtown clubs got the beat

Yeah the girls in the bars, they drink too much

And the drugs really turn on the heat

 

The lights at night

Shine on the river 

While I’m heading east to wake up my mind

Now the suns coming up over east saint Louis

And I’m wide awake and walking it blind

 

It’s not big city 

Anymore 

It’s no big city 

Oh not to me 

 

34 years later from the day I was born 

In the same city 

Almost all of my life

 

I’ve been right from wrong

I’ve been black and white

Sometimes at the blade of a knife 

 

Now it all makes sense

Why we need to stay together 

And we’re gonna fight the good fight 

 

Cause the times gonna come 

To open our hearts

Minds that will become one tonight

 

No big city 

Anymore 

It’s no big city 

Oh not to me 

 

I said no big city 

Well not anymore 

No big city 

Oh not to me

Well anymore

 

Not anymore 

 

Oh oh x6

 

Deep Down In Love

 

You’ve got everything 

That you’ll ever need

More than you deserve 

More than history 

 

Tell me what you’re made of 

 

So what’s got into you? 

Looks like the devil do 

Calling you every way

Just like them crazy say

Tell me what you’re made of 

 

It looks to me like you

Deep down in love 

(Deep down in love)

 

So now you’re on your own 

You’re making it all alone 

They can all go to hell

Swallow it like a pill 

 

So tell me what you’re made of 

 

You think you got your own damn groove 

Where everything’s nice and smooth 

In walks some long blonde hair 

Smiling pretty with an evil stare 

 

So tell me what you’re made of 

 

It looks to me like you

Fallen deep down in love 

 

Life ain’t no mystery 

It’s all about you and me 

You pay your bills

You go to church

Making life easy to burn baby 

 

So tell me what you think you’re made of 

 

That’s right 

You get a feeling that you can’t describe 

It’s telling you big fat lies

You stopped sweating and you’re losing control

About time to start trusting your soul

 

Now tell me what you’re made of 

 

Cause it looks to me like you

Oh deep down in love 

(Deep down in love)

 

That’s right

That’s right

We all gotta get there someday

Deep down in love 

 

Oh it’s what we’re made of 

Deep down in love 

 

LYRICS

Dirty Things

 

I’m taking my time 

Cause I know I’m gonna be alone

There’s nothing left to say 

When I get you on the phone 

You won’t look me in the eye 

When you’re walking out the door

 

Running me wrong in circles 

Around my heart 

And you won’t come clean 

With the one that you’re loving in the dark 

And all the pain inside 

It won’t stop hurting at all

 

And it’s all because of you 

And the dirty things you do 

And it’s because of you 

And the dirty things you do 

I can’t help myself 

When it comes to loving you 

 

Something inside is telling me to walk away 

But I see your body 

And my mind starts to go astray 

I lose my cool anytime you 

Look away

 

And it’s all because of you 

And the dirty things you do 

And it’s because of you 

And the dirty things you do 

I can’t help myself 

When it comes to loving you 

 

You’re trying to hurt me 

Cause I know all your lies

I see all the little dirty things 

You know they 

Sparkle in your eyes 

 

I knew in my heart 

That you’re just no good

And when you hurt me this time

I knew that you would 

I knew I should have never let you in

And never let you taken control 

 

And it’s all because of you 

And the dirty things you do 

And it’s because of you 

And the dirty things you do 

I can’t help myself 

When it comes to loving you 

 

Hollywood

 

Freaks on the corner 

Setting up trim 

Bums on the street 

On their last bender 

 

Too much trash and too much time 

And not much to eat on just a dime 

People ask me why I would

Live my life in Hollywood 

 

You know the record deals they’re down the street 

And up the hills the porn chicks in heat

Alcohol is not enough yeah but 

Shots from sunset gonna get you tough

People ask me why I would 

Live my life in Hollywood 

 

Oh got that nasty reputation 

For messing up this generation 

It’s not a mess it’s understood 

It’s worse than hell it’s

Oh it’s Hollywood 

 

Cigars and martinis 

Oh they make the scene

Transvestite love yeah you know that’s all I need 

 

But everybody’s doing their thing

They’re keeping in line they’re keeping in swing

I’m packing up I’m on the move baby 

I wanna live in Hollywood

I’m gonna live in Hollywood 

I’m gonna pack it up to Hollywood 

Oh I gotta move all baby to Hollywood 

 

Oh oh oh oh

(Hollywood)

Oh oh oh oh

(Hollywood) 

 

Time to Go Home

 

 

Well it’s about that time again

I pack my bags full of where I been 

All the guitars and microphones are loaded up

And we’re ready to roll

 

It’s 30 hours looking straight down the line

And I think about that little girl that’s mine

Cause you know up north it never gets warm

Like it does in the Gulf of Mexico

 

And I know the boys they all had a good time

And thanks to all our friends who were there each night

And now it’s time 

It’s time to go home

It’s time to go home 

 

And just when you think you were on your way 

You turn around and you got one more day 

And then you get tired, oh you gonna get tired

All over again

 

Sometimes you’re thinking what’s it all for

Cause you’re working so damn hard just to 

To make enough to pay the bills

And hope for just a little more

 

And I know the boys they all had a good time

And thanks to all our friends who were there each night

And now it’s time 

It’s time to go home

It’s time to go home 

 

Well it’s the music that drives my soul

Keeps me going when I’m getting low 

And you can’t miss home 

You can’t miss home, until you’re on the road

 

And I know the boys they all had a good time

And thanks to all our friends who were there each night

And now it’s time 

It’s time to go home

It’s time to go home 

It’s time to go home

It’s time to go home
